to back off of this government program that has helped push the economy along and that has sent the markets in a tail spin. he used the word "taper", he's going to taper the program. what does that mean? well, imagine the economy to be like a kid trying to ride a bicycle after a spill, trying to get back on balance. the fed has been helping out to steady and push him along with about $85 billion a month in stimulus. ben bernanke has been looking at numbers saying housing is up almost 7% in may, unemployment 7.6%, not getting better but not getting worse, gdp, 2.6%, all of that he's saying is that all of this that is good enough that the government can start backing off and let the economy stand on its own a little more. i'll be there. if it gets in trouble, i'll step in and save it, it will be okay, there is what we should do. so why are the markets so troubled? partially because they're looking at the same numbers and they are not as confident. their sense is that if you step away from this economy right now and try to let it ride on its own, in fact you could have a lot of wob
is making out, you know, like a bandit and what i found is we basically had been living in two economies in this country for the last ten years. there's the economy where you and i know where people are hard pressed jobs are tight and money is tight and then there's the healthcare economy where everybody is doing really well except maybe the nurses and the doctors but the people that sell the equipment, the people that make the drugs, the people that run the allegedly nonprofit hospitals are all making ridiculous amounts of money. >> so you mean the doctors who spend 12, sometimes 15 years just preparing to be a doctor are making less money. >> far less unless they got in the system so they started a clinic where they can send patients or they're consulting for a drug company, they're not making the big bucks. the guys who make the cat scan equipment or the pharmaceutical sales men and executive, the hospital administrators, your local nonprofit hospital without even knowing it, i can tell you that the guy who runs your local hospital in little rock makes well over $1,000,000 and a half
think that leadership of the house recognizes that immigration reform would be good for the economy and good for their branding as it relates to the latino community and if they want to have a chance to get the white house next year as senator lindsey graham talked about, i think that they understand that the leadership level that this is a real goal that they want but i think they are going to have trouble work with their base in the caucus but i'm convinced that the momentum that could be gained by a strong vote in the senate would be with the ground swell of public support. it's very clear in poll after poll that the american people want this issue solved. they want a resolution on this. this is a win-win for the country and i think people see on the economic benefits as well, what you're hearing in those extreme voice by house members is just not consistent with the broad feelings of the american people have said they want in terms of this issue. >> thanks so much. >>> thank you. >> alex, susan, we've seen this, the republicans who have been on the forefront of this, some taking
this in closed session and gone to the chair of the economy, say the same thing. even better answer, as we discussed, not appropriate to answer that question in open session. why clapper didn't do that, why the 5,000 employees of the director of national intelligence didn't explain that to him. why he didn't go to the white house, why he made up a religious answer and said it of the least untruthful, i don't have the slightest idea. i think he should resign over embarrassment. not because he lied. >> snowden, as far as long as he had worked for cia as a contractor, why did he have so much access? >> like bradley manning, the enlisted man in the army who revealed hundreds of thousands of diplomatic communications, we have a real problem that has to be explain. i had say this about snow deb. i don't think his story holds together. i don't know if he has accomplices. picking up information from people on the hill who are leaking it to him. i fin it hard to believe he had access to everything he said he had access too. i also find it hard to believe that he's getting away with some of the trul

program. after a two-day policy meeting wednesday the fed updated the outlook for the economy and bernanke said that's why the fed will most likely slow down its stimulus program. >> the committee currently anticipates it would be appropriate to moderate the monthly purchases later this year and if the subsequent data remain broadly aligned with current expectations for the economy, we would continue to dries the pace of purchases in measured steps through the first half of next year, ending purchases around mid-year. >> bernanke also expects the unemployment rate to fall to 6.8% by the end of 2014. on wall street bernanke's words spooked investors. the dow dropped 206 points and the nasdaq fell 31 points. >>> tokyo's nikkei dropped nearly 2%. hong kong's hang seng lost nearly 3%. >>> well, the irs is caught in another controversy. the agency says it's has to pay $70 million in union bonuses. some republicans want the irs to follow a white house directive and cancel them. in april the obama administration ordered all agencies to stop handing out bonuses bought of automatic spending cuts. >
to pull back from that stimulus in the economy, that means that things are looking better. i'm not saying that that's what the situation is but the truth is that means the economy really is in a steady recovery. that's a good thing. that means people are finding jobs. that means they feel more comfortable about buying large ticket items whether it be car or a new refrigerator. those are really very good things. it also means this market is going to start trading on fundamentals again. that's really very comforting for traders. admittedly they were addicted to the punch bowl that's been there but there are plenty people out there that say it's a good thing to go back to the fundamentals. >> all right. it's good news. thank you. appreciate it. >> that will fix it. >>> we have to turn to canada. major emergency unfolding in the province of alberta. there's been flooding there. 75,000 people driven from their homes in the major city of calgary. >> that city has not seen anything like this before. the situation so serious that the canadian military has been called out to help the rescuers. >>

changes to make there, but the really big news on the economy came yesterday. obviously, with ben bernanke. >> joining me is former treasury official and analyst steve rattner. also, we have new york times reporter jeremy peters. good to have you both onboard. we'll start with ben bernanke. he expressed confidence in the nation's economic growth yesterday saying the fed will start to rein in its stimulus program later this year. bernanke laid out the federal reserves plan, which includes tapering off its multibillion bond-buying program until the unemployment rate drops to 7%. the fed expects that to happy the middle of next year. >> that's great news, right? >> in some way. >> so that's the good news. what bad news could there be from that, steve rattner. >> i think we'll find out. >> the fed will also hold off on raising interest rates keeping them to near zero until unemployment falls to 6.5%. as for wall street's response, this may be where things change. the markets took a dive as soon as bernanke started speaking. by 3:05 the dow fell 140 points closing the day down more than 200, st

the economy's bad it increases, when the economy's good, it goes down. the reason we don't have mass starvation is this program is helping tens of millions of american families survive. the facts are, before the 1970s, when we did have the program, we had third world style malnutrition. these programs almost entirely ended hunger in the 1970s. >> that used to be a bipartisan understanding. bob doll is one of the founding fathers of this program. and it used to be a way to help farmers and families. there's a business case for continuing these programs. the biggest recipients of the money. it's all cycled back into the economy. >> no one's saving -- companies like kraft that make the boxed food that's inexpensive to buy, companies like walmart, supermarkets, all plow in the money from these food stamp programs. we also had this interconnectedness of our safety net programs that's going to make this a double problem. feeding america that operates lots of food banks around the country sent out an alert saying, you have kids who get free and reduced lunch because their families are eligi
this year because the economy is improving. it could also mark the beginning of the end of historically low interest rates. right now the dow is down. you see it on your screen, 227 points after falling 206 points yesterday. cnbc's kayla joins us live. kayla, the residuals still from bernanke's speech? >> tamara, i think we're going to be feeling the reverberations from that for a long time. all three averages are down 1.5%. you have gold which investors go to when they sell out of stocks. gold is down, too. you have bonds down also and the interest rates on those bonds are spiking. the ten year treasury is at a yield that it hasn't seen in nearly two years. stocks for their part have retreated. they've lost basically everything they've made in the last two months. you've mentioned it. it's somewhat ironic. a normal observer would say why is everything sell off because chairman bernanke said the market was doing better? there were all of these green chutes and signs up. there was an unprecedented amount by the federal reserve buying bonds, initiating pra ms to help stimulate the economy, an
